    Disney deleted what many social media users considered a morbid post on their official Twitter account on Monday, which showed the classic character Pinocchio seemingly left “dead inside.” The tweet, which was posted around 2 p.m. on Sunday to the brand’s nearly six million followers, was a GIF from Disney’s 1940’s classic Pinocchio showing the doll being enchanted by a blue fairy with the tagline: “When someone compliments you, but you’re dead inside.” “Makes no difference who you are,” the tweet read, a lyric from the film’s Oscar-winning song, “Wish Upon a Star.” The post quickly went viral, garnered around...

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando nightclub shooter intended to attack Disney World's shopping and entertainment complex by hiding a gun in a stroller but became spooked by police and instead chose the gay club as his target, prosecutors said Wednesday. Prosecutors revealed the details during their closing arguments in the trial of Noor Salman, the widow of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen. Salman, 31, is accused of aiding her husband in the attack that killed 49 people in 2016. She is charged with obstruction and providing material support to a terrorist organization. **SNIP** "The target of that terrorist attack was...

    FULL TITLE: Expect more tastelessness from the Planned Parenthood that tweeted “We Need a Disney Princess Who’s Had an Abortion” Remember how we ended yesterday’s post about an incredibly tasteless tweet from Planned Parenthood Keystone [Pa.]– “We Need a Disney Princess Who’s Had an Abortion”? Although they had pulled it down after an hour of two, I concluded, “I’m sure after a couple of days of quiet, the same clever folks at PP Keystone that gave us “We Need a Disney Princess Who’s Had an Abortion” will bring back for its audience more tastelessness. Why am I so sure? It’s...

    Some previous children’s musicals, notably The Lion King, have successfully taken Disney to Broadway. The stage version of Frozen that just debuted at the St. James Theatre, though, is turning one corner of Broadway into Disney World. The musical is such a literal, dutiful take that it’s the kind of thing you’d expect to pop up before your eyes unannounced at the Magic Kingdom itself, in front of Cinderella’s Castle, while you’re feasting on chicken nuggets and chocolate milk. I’m not saying the principal actors in Broadway’s Frozen are animatronic bots, but if you had peered backstage during the intermission,...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood Deletes Tweet Saying “We Need a Disney Princess Who’s Had an Abortion,” But Defends Posting It When LifeNews’ article about Planned Parenthood wanting a Disney princess to have an abortion went viral Tuesday, it met an immediate backlash from abortion activists who did not want to believe the story was true. But Planned Parenthood itself confirmed the tweet late Tuesday and defended posting it, WNEP News reports. The outrage erupted Tuesday morning after a Pennsylvania affiliate of the abortion chain posted the following on its Twitter page: “We need a Disney princess who’s had an abortion....

    The Pennsylvania affiliate of Planned Parenthood tweeted – and then deleted – its statement announcing its wishes for a Disney princess who has had an abortion and who satisfies the left’s fantasy of identity politics: The tweet comes as many congressional Republicans and President Donald Trump broke their promise to their pro-life base by agreeing to provide taxpayer funds in the omnibus spending bill to Planned Parenthood – an organization that profits from abortion and is under a federal investigation due to allegations it illegally profits from the sale of body parts of babies aborted in its clinics. Sen. Ted...

    Nothing is sacred to Planned Parenthood, except the mass killing of unborn babies. This week, a Pennsylvania branch of the abortion chain targeted young, idealistic girls with its abortion agenda. “We need a Disney princess who’s had an abortion,” Planned Parenthood Keystone wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “We need a Disney princess who’s pro-choice.” Impressionable, idealistic little girls often adore the strength, bravery and compassion of the princesses displayed in Disney films. They dress like them, sing their songs, look up to them and imagine being them because they portray something good, something noble. Planned Parenthood would utterly corrupt their idealistic...

    Being the stage adaptation of one of Disney's highest-grossing animations meant expectations were always going to be high. But the Broadway production of Frozen seemingly failed to melt the hearts of its audience when it made its debut at the St. James Theatre in New York City on Thursday night, as the hotly-anticipated production received a rather icy reception from many of its critics. Despite being in the trusted hands of Broadway phenomenons Cassie Levy (Elsa) and Patti Murin (Anna), it seemed reviewers found the show made for lacklustre viewing as show-makers attempted to recreate Frozen's infinite kingdom, which is...

    Walt Disney World has finally reopened its popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction — minus the controversial “Bride Auction” sequence. The scene, which appeared in the “Pirates” rides at Disney World, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris, had originally depicted a group of women bound to an auction block, with a banner reading “Auction: Take a wench for a bride” hanging above their heads. A group of nearby pirates could also be heard requesting the redheaded “wench,” who was the most prominently displayed woman on the block. As of the ride’s reopening on March 19, however, the whole scene has been...

    Disneyland is squashing its bugs in favor of Marvel superheroes, as it plans to replace the “a bug’s land” at Disney California Adventure theme park in Anaheim with a new “land” devoted to Marvel comic characters. In a move that had been rumored for some time, Disney announced on Tuesday that the new Marvel land slated to open in 2020 will be anchored by the revamped Guardians of the Galaxy ride, replacing the cute-bug-based attractions area that appealed mostly to little kids. New Marvel Lands will also be developed in Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong. Disney’s Hotel New York will...

  • A Wrinkle in Time Review: Disney's Latest Is a Colossal Disappointment

    MovieWeb ^ | March 7, 2018 | Julian Roman
    Ava DuVernay's adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time is a colossal disappointment. The classic science fiction novel by Madeleine L'Engle has been turned into a sappy melodrama; utterly devoid of mystery or wonder. DuVernay's approach to the story is to emphasize its outcast element. The result is a fire hose of gushing positive reinforcement for the bullied, angst ridden protagonist. It reminded me of Al Franken's famous SNL skit, "Daily Affirmations with Stuart Smalley"; where he sits in front of a mirror saying, "You're good enough, you're smart enough, and doggone it, people like me". A Wrinkle in Time is...

    James Comey has found a safe space at Disney’s ABC News -- Clinton crony Stephanopoulos is expected to use his booking of Comey .. to justify his eight-figure salary... the ABC star already is facing criticism that his background as a liberal political operative would make it hard for him to be objective. The interview will be a tall order for Stephanopoulos, and not just because he’s more than a foot shorter than Comey.

    The director of the 2013 smash hit “Frozen” is leaving the door open for the beloved character to have a romance with a woman in the upcoming sequel. While no details have been confirmed about the follow up to the film that had children and adults everywhere singing “Let It Go,” director Jennifer Lee is teasing her new movie, “A Wrinkle in Time,” and sharing some details about the Disney princess Elsa’s future. When the film debuted in 2013, fans far and wide perceived LGBT themes in the character, calling the hit song a “coming out” anthem. For those unfamiliar,...

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | February 25, 2018 | Pamela McClintock
    Ryan Coogler's groundbreaking superhero pic Black Panther continued to defy all expectations in its sophomore outing, grossing an estimated $108 million from 4,020 theaters to score the top second weekend of all time behind 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Disney and Marvel title reached the $400 million mark domestically in only 10 days after dropping a narrow 47 percent in its second weekend. That's one of the smallest declines ever for a superhero title, as well as one of the smallest for a film launching north of $200 million (the bigger the opening, the bigger the drop in...
